June 7, 8, and 9, 2013 have been designated as Free Fishing Days in Virginia.
No fishing license of any kind will be required for rod and reel fishing in freshwater or saltwater, except in designated stocked trout waters, on those days.
Access Permits will also be waived on Free Fishing Days for anyone fishing or with someone who’s fishing. The public is invited to plan some time to go fishing and boating; take the family fishing and boating; or learn to fish and boat.
